Great Britain is an island.
Here are some ideas : Schleswig-Holstein, Stuttgart, Silesia, 's Hertogenbosch, Skopje, Split
It has nothing to do with "diversity" (not that there's anything wrong with that) but all to do with making the quizzes less boring. Telling people to compile their own quiz instead is a lazy cop out.
Anyone familiar enough with European geography to get the Sheffield answer should also know the name of the longest river in Ireland, just to give an example of how it could be more wide-ranging.
Obviously it's not the quiz setters job to discourage people from playing by posing deliberately difficult questions, but basing nearly a quarter of all questions in a European quiz around one country is equally off putting.
As much as I love Britain and British related quizzes, the over representation of questions on the place in this series about Europe is tedious.
This particular category could well be renamed "European Geography by Alphabet, (with a chunk of questions straight out of a British tourist guidebook".
Switzerland does not stand up for "what's right" because it's a strategy to survive in the middle of European superpowers. According to the fact that Switzerland wasn't the speed bump of the Germans in both WW it's a successful strategy. And before someone want it to mention: Yes, Switzerland traded with the Nazis, which is a cause for the peace in WWII too.
However: Isolationist is a strong word. I'd use it for North Korea for example, but not for a Country like Switzerland.
